Overview

It aims to prepare participants for research, development, and management functions in their respective countries.

The EUMASLI – European Master in Sign Language Interpreting offered by the Humak University of Applied Sciences strength lies in its international outlook and in its collaborative spirit. Organised and delivered by Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences (Germany), Humak University of Applied Sciences (Finland) and Heriot-Watt University (Scotland), the programme brings together teachers and students from around the world in a joint effort to move the field of sign language interpreting forward. It affords scope for individual development and encourages cooperation across geographical, cultural and conceptual borders.

Over the period of 2.5 years, students travel to participate in block-seminars at all partner universities and engage in online activities and self-study. Since 90 ECTS credits (i.e. the equivalent of 2,700 student working hours) are to be obtained, the work load is considerable.
